Ingredients

Chicken and Beef Broth:

Directions

In a blender or grinder, grind peanuts to a fine consistency. Heat olive oil in a large, heavy saucepan and gently saute the onion, garlic, celery, and leeks until translucent. Add cayenne pepper, cumin, salt, pepper, ground peanuts, and stock. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes. Add milk and cream, cover, and simmer gently for an additional 30 minutes. Serve garnished with chopped parsley and peanuts.

Chicken and Beef Broth:

Make a brine by combining salt and water in a large bucket. Soak chicken in salt water for 2 hours. Remove chicken and rinse thoroughly. Bring the beef to a boil reduce the heat and let simmer for 30 minutes; skimming off the foam from the surface with a wooden spoon.

Add the chicken and bring back to a boil still removing foam from surface. Add vegetables and seasoning, and simmer for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until meat is cooked through. Remove meat and strain the broth through a cheesecloth, twice.

Cook's Note

In South Africa, this soup is laced with liberal amounts of cayenne. It is even better if made in advance and reheated a day later. If too thick, add a little broth or water to thin.
